Her Campus Releases 4th Annual '22 Under 22 Most Inspiring College Women' List

BOSTON, MA (October 11th 2018) – For the 4th year in a row, Her Campus has scoured the globe to find the most ambitious, talented, and forward-thinking college women to recognize on its 22 Under 22 Most Inspiring College Women list. The college media and marketing powerhouse culled through over 1,000 powerful nominations and conducted interviews with many incredible applicants to narrow their list down to just 22.

"The level of talent we saw among the nominations made the selection process incredibly difficult," said Stephanie Kaplan Lewis, Co-founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Her Campus. "But we could not be more in awe of the truly aspirational group at which we have arrived."

Nominees were evaluated based on a mix of criteria including leadership experience, academic excellence, demonstrated passion for their cause, and ambitious goals for their future.
